The Denver Nuggets streak hit three straight losses on Sunday. Given the Nuggets still have a five-game lead atop the Western Conference, a more pressing concern is the health of Jamal Murray.
Denver's starting point guard exited Sunday's loss to the Brooklyn Nets early in the second half. Murray was dealing with some left knee soreness, but is reportedly "fine".
Murray missed all of last season, while recovering from a torn ACL suffered near the end of the 2020-21 season. Murray has missed time sporadically this season due to knee soreness, including a six-game stretch leading up to last month's All-Star break.
